Since winning the UEFA European Championship in 1992, Denmark has reached the quarterfinals of the tournament just once, when it lost to the Czech Republic in 2004. The Czechs, who won the title while part of Czechoslovakia in 1976, have reached the stage three previous times on their own but have yet to capture the crown. The Czech Republic attempts to take another step toward the championship when it faces Denmark on Saturday in the UEFA Euro 2020 quarterfinals. The Danes lost their first two group-stage matches but bounced back with a pair of convincing victories, including a 4-0 win against Wales in the Round of 16, while the Czechs are coming off a 2-0 triumph over the Netherlands.
Kickoff from Baku Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan is scheduled for noon ET.

Why you should back Denmark
The Danes have rallied around the loss of star Christian Eriksen, who suffered a cardiac arrest in the team's group-stage opener, a 1-0 setback against Finland. They went on to drop a 2-1 decision to Belgium in their next game but have stormed back with a pair of emphatic victories, 4-1 versus Russia and the rout over the Welsh. Denmark also was without a key member in that contest as Yussuf Poulsen sat out due to an issue with his gluteus muscle, but Kasper Dolberg did his best to lessen the blow.
Making his first start for the Danes in a major tournament after appearing in just one of their three group-stage games, the 23-year-old Dolberg set the tone by scoring the first two goals of the match. He shares the team lead in tallies with Poulsen and Joakim Maehle as Denmark, which has allowed only four scores in as many games, enters the quarterfinals tied with Italy for the second-most goals in the tournament with nine -- two behind Spain. The 24-year-old Maehle, who made his debut with the national team in September, enters Saturday having scored in back-to-back contests.
Why you should back Czech Republic
Including a friendly against Albania in early June, Patrik Schick has scored in four of his last five matches for the Czechs. The 25-year-old is one goal behind Cristiano Ronaldo for the tournament lead as he netted both tallies in a victory over Scotland in the group-stage opener, the lone goal in a 1-1 draw versus Croatia and one of the scores in a 2-0 triumph over the Netherlands in the round of 16. With one more tally, Schick will pull even with Milan Baros for most career goals in the European Championship in Czech Republic history.
Tomas Holes has emerged as another dangerous weapon for the Czechs, as he scored one goal and assisted on Schick's tally in the victory over the Netherlands. The goal was just the second in 12 matches while representing his nation and ended a nine-game drought after he converted in a friendly against Cyprus in October. The Czech Republic has lost only two of its previous 25 meetings with Denmark, posting 13 victories in the all-time series - including a 3-0 win in the Euro 2004 quarterfinals.
